DC police won’t provide 911 call of shooting inside conservative Christian lobbying group

From The Washington Post:

WASHINGTON — The D.C. police department is refusing to release a copy of a 911 call made after a shooting at the headquarters of a conservative Christian lobbying group, even though such recordings are treated as public records in many other jurisdictions.

The Associated Press had requested a copy of the Aug. 15 recording under the District of Columbia’s open records law. But the department rejected that request, saying the call was part of an ongoing FBI investigation, that the caller was a witness in the investigation and that it would not be possible to edit the recording to redact sensitive portions of the call.
